Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Tuesday September 14 Spokesperson for the aggrieved customers, Fred Forson, said: “We call on Parliament to investigate the closure of Menzgold including the role played by SEC and  EOCO as well as the bank accounts of the CEO and board members of Menzgold and Brew Marketing Companies.
